Summary "A woman and her family give up life in 1970s America for a farmhouse in southern France in this memoir peppered with delicious French recipes. From the publisher of Under the Tuscan Sun comes another extraordinary memoir of a woman embarking on a new life -- this time in the South of France. In 1970, James Beard Award -- winning author Georgeanne Brennan set out to realize the dream of a peaceful, rural existence en Provence. She and her husband, with their young daughter in tow, bought a small farmhouse with a little land, and a few goats and pigs and so began a life-affirming journey. Filled with delicious recipes and local color, this evocative and passionate memoir describes her life cooking and living in the Provençal tradition. Praise for A Pig in Provence "You can almost smell the lavender as you follow Brennan's love affair with the province that became her second home and shaped the culinary persona of this cooking teacher and food author. Brennan is a talented storyteller." -- San Francisco Chronicle "Georgeanne Brennan's captivating memoir reminds me of why I, too, was enchanted by Provence. She beautifully captures the details of living in a place where the culture of the table ties a community together -- where everyone knows the butcher and the baker, and everyone depends on the farmers." -- Alice Waters, owner, Chez Panisse "Fascinating... Brennan revels equally in the preparation and consumption of the regional cuisine You can almost hear her lips smacking." -- The New York Times Book Review "Georgeanne Brennan's romance with Provence continues to deepen, and the result of her long residence there is an intimacy with local people, food, and folkways. I would love to pull up a chair to her table." -- Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun"-- Provided by Freading.
